Michigan Joyriding Laws

Driving away an automobile without permission is a criminal offense, though the severity of that offense does change depending on whether or not intent to steal is present. According to Section 750.414, any person who takes or uses any motor vehicle without authority without intent to steal, or who is involved in the taking or using of a motor vehicle without permission and without intent to steal, is guilty of a misdemeanor offense. Joyriding is punished incredibly harshly, and in many cases, especially repeat offense joyriding cases in Detroit, the punishment resembles the penalties for a felony conviction.

As soon as you or a loved one is accused of involvement in a joyriding offense, it is crucial that you contact a recognized defense firm and get in touch with a lawyer who knows what it takes to help you achieve an exceptional case result. Grabel & Associates is available 24/7 for clients statewide after joyriding investigations, or actual misdemeanor charges in Detroit.
